Week 6 Bold Predictions

Rhamondre Stevenson finishes Week 6 because the fable RB1 general
His Week 5 utilization with out Damien Harris: 25 carries for 161 yards, 90% snap proportion, 64% direction participation and 100% of RB touches in 2d part. The Browns have allowed the third-most fable issues to RBs this season and personal the second-worst in run protection EPA. The Patriots have long past tremendous run-heavy during the last two weeks with backup QBs: a 60% run fee on early downs for the third-best rush EPA. So although groups know the run sport is coming, they nonetheless can’t prevent it. And they gained’t with Stevenson in a complete bell-cow function.

Marcus Mariota will likely be benched for Desmond Ridder this week towards the 49ers
Two weeks in a row, Marcus Mariota has failed to succeed in 150 passing yards. He additionally failed to place any issues at the board for the Falcons within the first 3 quarters of Sunday’s contest. The Steelers made their transfer to the long run two weeks in the past, and the Falcons have little or no to lose by means of giving Desmond Ridder a glance to peer if he can begin to diversify this one restricted offense. Are the 49ers the perfect first probability for Ridder? No. But the Steelers confirmed get to the bottom of by means of letting Kenny Pickett be told at the process in Buffalo ultimate week, and the Falcons must practice go well with.
Joe Pisapia

If James Conner is out, Eno Benjamin is a most sensible 5 RB
Benjamin seems like the lead again in a break matchup this week. When Benjamin has gotten alternatives, he’s produced. He’s tenth in yards created according to contact, thirteenth in juke fee, twenty first in breakaway run fee, and sixteenth in yards according to direction run. Seattle is sixteenth in rush good fortune fee, thirty second in dashing yards according to sport, and 18th in explosive run fee. They had been even worse towards receiving backs rating twenty sixth in DVOA, permitting the third-most receiving yards and sixth-highest yards according to reception. Week 6. The matchup all of us idea we’d clamor for. Chef Geno vs. Sous-chef Eno.
Derek Brown

Joe Burrow will throw for 300+ yards and 4 touchdowns towards the Saints in New Orleans
The ultimate time Joe Burrow performed within the Superdome was once on Jan. 13, 2020, when he lit up Clemson for 463 passing yards and 5 TD passes within the National Championship Game. (He additionally ran for 58 yards and a landing.) This weekend, Burrow returns to New Orleans to stand a Saints protection that simply gave up 268 passing yards and 3 TD passes to Geno Smith and the Seahawks. Smith averaged 10.7 yards according to go try in that sport and posted a passer score of 139.7. Clearly, all isn’t correct with the Saints’ go protection. Expect Burrow to banquet this week even supposing he doesn’t have the products and services of WR Tee Higgins, who’s questionable with an ankle harm.
Pat Fitzmaurice

Tom Brady throws for 400 yards and 4 touchdowns
With the go back of WRs Mike Evans and Chris Godwin and LT Donovan Smith in Week 4, Brady has been on fireplace over his previous two video games with 736 yards and 4 touchdowns to 0 interceptions on 74-of-104 passing. And now he faces the Steelers, who’re No. 5 in maximum fable issues allowed to opposing quarterbacks (22.1 according to sport) and could be with out Nos. 1-2 CBs Cameron Sutton (hamstring) and Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) and SS Terrell Edmunds (concussion), all of whom overlooked observe on each Wednesday and Thursday. I feel this sport will likely be a large get-right spot for all of the Buccaneers offense, beginning with Brady.
